Don’t Give Up Yet
A happy new week to you. I hope you are doing great? Don’t forget to always look up to Jesus, the author, and finisher of your FAITH! Besides, there’s no NEED being on earth without been heavenly cautious…
Jesus is coming SOON!
Meanwhile, today I am here to tell you, “Don’t give up yet!”
Whatever you may be encountering or undergoing right now in your life, I encourage you to go through it and not give up!
Habakkuk 3:19 says that the way we develop hind’s feet (a hind is an animal that can climb mountains swiftly) is … to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]!
God helps us make spiritual advancement by being with us to empower and strengthen us to “keep on keeping on” in turbulent times. It’s easy to stop; it takes faith to go through. There are thousands upon thousands of ideas(thoughts) granted to us every day. The mind has to be renewed repeatedly to follow after the Spirit and not the flesh. Our carnal (worldly, fleshly) minds have had so much work operating freely that we surely don’t have to use any effort to think wrong thoughts.
When the battle seems limitless, and you think you’ll never make it, remember that you are reprogramming a very carnal, fleshly, worldly mind to think as God thinks.
Impracticable? No! Difficult? Yes!
In Deuteronomy 1:2, Moses pointed out to the Israelites that it was only an 11-day journey to Canaan’s border (the Promised Land), yet it had taken them forty years to get there.
Then in verse 6 of that Chapter, he told them, “The Lord God says to us, ‘You have dwelt long enough on this mountain.'” Have you stayed long enough on the same mountain? Have you used forty years trying to make an 11-day trip?
In my own life, I eventually had to wake up and recognize that I was going nowhere. I was a Christian without triumph. Like John and Mary, I had many wrong mindsets and many mental citadels that had been built up over years and years. Satan had lied to me, and I had believed him. Consequently, I had been living in deceit.
I had been on the same mountain long enough. I had spent several years making what could have been a much quicker journey had I known the truth of God’s Word. God showed me that the Israelites stayed in the wilderness because they had a “wilderness-mentality”—special types of wrong thinking that kept them in subjugation.
Make up your mind that you will not stop and give up until triumph is complete, and you have taken territory of your rightful heritage. I wish you a great WEEK 🙂
